Deepest amber pour Ive seen from an IPA. Nice white head that faded fairly quickly. Good hoppy flavours with a very strong malt presence.

Pours auburn, aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is much the same, it was decent, seemed a bit of a mish mash really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber pour. Some sediment. Not sure if this is intended. Toffee malt nose and hops. Not as robust as expected more malt and faint citrus hops.

Deep gold amber pour. Thin head, not much lacing, pretty quick to dissipate. Fairly mild aroma, pine, some grapefruit. Taste is caramel, pine. Decently bitter finish. Good IPA overall, not spectacular.

Wondering if this beer is old, or if it is actually on lees, cause it has some serious floaties in it... ah well. Things Ive eaten in the woods has nothing on a bit of whatever this is. Pour a dark (murky) amber with a lazy and long-lasting off-white head. Great aroma of oranges and citrus and resin. Taste is bitter with a bit of balancing malt, fruity, slightly oaky. Quite good. Id like some more of this on a warm autumn day, I think.

Bottle is infected. Was a gusher when poured. Has 7/8 of the glass in head. A DMS rotten egg note overpowers the big hops and malt I know this beer has from previous experience with it, including at the tap room at the brewery. It still tastes reasonably good but has a papery oxidization that threatens to take over everything. Too bad I normally like this beer.

On Cask in Toronto. Pours great golden amber colour with decent head. Aroma is mild with pine. Taste is medium bitter. Average offering.

Bottle. Pours an amber colour. Lots of head that takes a while to go down. Nose has grassy notes. Very crisp and dry finish with a bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A dark malty ale with roasty toffee notes along with a good hop bitterness bite. every time ive poured there is a massive white head that takes a while to . Ive had a few of these and they have grown on me with each one I have had the more I enjoy these. Nice to have some craft brew in the local area.

Bottle, 7.5%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. Glad to see craft beer being produced in my hometown.
